Meditative Archery & Yoga Retreat
29 July - 1 October 2022
Intuitive archery offers us ONE way to put reflective thinking on the back burner, something that keeps us so busy in everyday life. The focus on the outside is the goal, many find it easier to relax mentally in activity and contemplation than, for example, in classic meditation.
Through inner stillness we realize that we are not servants of our thoughts. Our heart gets more space. The subconscious sends us messages. Again and again in silence during drawing and releasing, our intuitive abilities are encouraged. In meditation we turn off the rational mind for a while. Mental relaxation, opening, self-reflection become possible.
Feel the presence just before letting go the arrow, relaxing the fingers.
This 6 day retreat offers Meditation, Archery and Yoga on the beautiful beach resort of Arillas.
